XChat 2.8.3e

XChat is an IRC (chat) program for Windows and UNIX (Linux/BSD) operating systems. I.R.C. is Internet Relay Chat, see https://irchelp.org for more information about IRC in general. XChat runs on most BSD and POSIX compliant operating systems, and has been reported to work on, at least:

  • GNU-Linux
  • FreeBSD
  • NetBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • Solaris
  • AIX
  • IRIX
  • DEC/Compaq Tru64 UNIX
  • HP-UX 10.20 and 11
  • MacOS X
  • Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP

  • Scrolling with a background image is now much faster.
  • Fixed underscore in the nick-name right-click menu being drawn as an underline.
  • ut2004:// URLs are now underlined too.
  • /set gui_tray_flags 4 will now enable a "Minimize to tray" feature. Clicking the window minimize button will minimize to tray instead of the task-bar.
  • Fixed bug: [1680762] Notify fails if network name contains spaces.
  • Fixed a crash if your clock was accidently set beyond 2038.
  • XChat now handles multi-monitor and resolution changes more gracefully, so that menus arn't drawn off-screen etc.
  • Script and Plugin related changes:
    • /SETTEXT with no argument now clears the input box.
    • Returning 0 from an FD hook now unhooks it (C API and Perl).
    • Python now has a xchat.strip method (to strip mIRC codes).
